OLE JENSEN had in the early sixties one page in the german weekly magazine CONSTANZE. in his style he would paint portraits of some of the celebrities of that time, either movie stars or politicians. as far as I remember he was a very well known painter and a professor at one of the german art academies. unfortunately there is no information about him on the internet. I liked his unusual portrait style and his painting technique. following are the few pages I saved over the years.
